Meets/Ride Outs

Postby ianl » Sat Jul 23, 2016 11:18 am

My apologies if this discussion has been done to death before (I do vaguely recall) but are the meets in Scotland and Yorkshire club events for members only or open to all and if open to all where do we advertise/plan them?
I have now now exchanged contracts so hopefully will soon be in Dorset and would like to try and organise something south of the M62 if there is any interest.

Thanks

Ian

Hi Ian,
All Club events are open to all to allow prospective members to check out whether they wish to join the Club.
Regards
Keith

Hi Ian,
I did not know there was anything south of the M62 apart from dragons,

There are meets up here but no one in the south have offered anything, the MotoGuzzi club used to meet in Shaftsbury so the town is very open and friendly to motorcyclists.

Have you exchanged yet?

When you have got unpacked please keep an eye open for a good venue for a 2 day camping event in 2017

Can I just clarify - are the Yorkshire and Scottish meets club events. If so does this mean a non member can only come once and would I need a risk assessment?

We move on 12th August. A forum user did mention a pub with a campsite so I'll check it out and anything else likely in the area. Do you think any of you folk up north will venture so far? There's not a fell or a whippet to be seen.....................

Hi
EDIT
Text removed because Keith and PK clarified it below saying what I intended but more fluently


In principle I would come, price, accommodation, dates etc all meeting my usual very high standards, in fact I came down a couple of months ago to go to the Sammy Miller Museum and go to the IoW on the hovercraft.

However if there is not a fell or a whippet to be seen life may be hard to cope with. If there is decent cider, that could blunt the shock.

Good luck with the move on the Glorious Twelfth

George

Hi Ian and George,
For clarification :-
All Club event require a risk assessment (forms are simple to fill out) Without the risk assessment our insurance for public liability is not valid.
The risk assessment has to be passed by the club officers prior to the event commencing.

Club events are open to all, this is to encourage new members, giving them time to check us out before joining.
Regards
Keith

As the organiser of the Yorkshire lunch meets, let me add my two penn'orth
I've been asked this question before, and this is my stock answer.

Officially (for insurance) all "Club" events are only open to club members.
However, ... all of the lunch meets (for example) are held in a public bar / cafe / hotel where any member of the public can freely go.
Therefore we would have a very difficult time stopping anyone who wasn't a member turning up and talking / or sitting with us.

But, if you turn up 2 or 3 times, I would feel duty bound to ask if you would please consider joining, as you obviously enjoy the event.
As I said, perhaps not full club policy, but my thoughts.

Hi
What Keith says is true. Risk assessments are in place

What PK said was what I was trying to say

As Ian said early on in this discussion we have talked about it before

South Lancs meeting at Noon Today

Edited to remove surplus text and to reming people to come In The Rain to Hazlingdon
